Apple's 3D OS X interface unveiled

A series of Apple patent filings reveal Apple's new possible multi-dimensional interface for Mac OS X that could make better use of screen real estate by increasing the number of virtual surfaces capable of housing application and interface elements.

The most extensive of the filings, titled "Multi-Dimensional Desktop," was submitted to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office back in June of last year. The interface enhancements could be candidates for inclusion in future versions of Mac OS X.
